Many of today's movies and TV crime shows exaggerate the capabilities of mainstream security equipment. The 1998 thriller "Enemy of the State" is a case in point. It presents a video recording from a two-dimensional, stationary surveillance camera, which subsequently is manipulated by a secret government agency to produce 3-D, 180-degree footage of the same scene. This might lead security system users to expect their seemingly comparable stationary camera to achieve the same performance. However, educational institutions must hold realistic expectations of their systems and equipment. Schools and universities should make sure that those expectations are clear before a system is installed. This article discusses how to build an effective security system.
